    There has got to be a way to do it on your phone. Time to start digging. Plus Ripping songs out of youtube vids is considered pirating by the youtube EULA.

    Red Dragon, that’s exactly why it’s hard to do this on the phone. There are 5 different apps that can do this (Tube Music was the last I used) but Google always removes them because they violate policies and TOC’s.

    Taylor if show up here today with that video set as your ringtone I’m going to be a bit worried.

    I updated my rooted evo from Fresh 3.3 to 3.4 and now ringdroid force closes every time I open it. I flashed back to previous rom, wiped, reinstalled ringdroid but it still force closes every time. I tried another ringtone maker app from market and that also force closes. I unistalled ringdroid and reinstalled it but, no luck. Any suggestions?? I love ringdroid for my boot animations. Could a file be missing that is causing the problem??

    Thanks,

    There used to be an app that did that for you. They dont have it in the market anymore but you can still find the apk file on the web nd download the non-market app. Its called “tubedroid” …go to 4shared.com to find it

  • http://www.clusta.com h0ruza

    There are far too many ad download links at that site http://www.listentoyoutube.com/index.php any real sites to do this?

  • http://www.clusta.com h0ruza

  • Janet55

    Hmm, thanks for the useful tips. Have got the listentoyoutube.com, but seems not easy to
    use. At last I got iFunia YouTube to Ringtone Converter, as read a similar guide “Turn YouTube Videos Into Ringtones For iPhone or Android Phones” in its blog, now works fine to make ringtones for my Phone.

    And if you want to buy a phone at the same price (you’d be doing me a favor and helping me expand my business) or maybe at a better price! Either way I personally send $50 gift cards of your choice to all my customers to show you how much it means to me.

    Plus I also sell TV, Internet, Energy and a whole bunch of other essential services for Residential and Businesses, in 23+ countries! So it’s a win-win either way! I help you get the best deals, you help me make money! (Lol now if you want to make money it’s a different story, I can franchise my business to you)

    Please contact me if you have any questions!

    I found an easier solution, @ http://youtubemp3x.com it is possible to download @ crop the music directly on android phones.

    Saves one extra step. But Ringdroid is quite a neat app :)

  • Uwmixradio

    Checkout uwmixradio. You send your the created content directly to your phone or bump the content to your phone using the bump app. It’s a very cool site. Check them out.

  • youtube to mp3

    Try http://www.you-tubetomp3.com

    Fast, can convert youtube, dailymotion, facebook and vimeo videos to mp3, mp4, flv and 3gp. Adjust bit rate and volume and convert the tune to a ringtone by editing it online.

    Cheers
